Home / News / SamMobile Recap: New budget Samsung phones, Galaxy S5 Tizen variant, Galaxy Note 3 update

There’s a lot of stuff that happens in the mobile industry, something that is especially true when it comes to giants like Samsung. If you missed out on some (or all) of what happened in the last 24 hours or so, well, here’s a recap of all the big things that went down.

Samsung launched five new budget phones, the Galaxy Core Mini 4G, Galaxy Core II, Galaxy Young 2, Galaxy Ace 4, and Galaxy Star 2, bloating its extensive portfolio of smartphones even further. A leak revealed that Samsung might also be working on a new variant of the Galaxy S5 that will be powered by Tizen, and we also saw full specs for the Galaxy Mega 2 make an appearance ahead of its launch.

The international Galaxy Note 3 (Snapdragon model) received an update that brought features such as KNOX 2.0, Download Booster, and Kids Mode. Samsung’s market share was revealed to have increased in the second quarter, with many Galaxy S5 owners upgrading from their small iPhones, and a Samsung executive stated how he thinks Apple devices no longer offer the magic that made the company’s existing devices popular.

Here’s the full rundown:

As usual, a lot of devices got general firmware updates as well, so here’s a list of all the updates that rolled to Samsung devices yesterday (as always, you can download all these firmware and more from our firmware section):

Samsung should remove its famed KIES application it is a absolute waste of an app a fraud played upon hapless consumers ever tried the “firmware upgrade and initialization” it deserves an award every 9 out of ten times it fails reason? the application cannot recognize the Samsung device how does a firmware upgrade start without identifying the device yet after 6 hours of patient waiting it fails this is my last Samsung Device GT-N5100 will never buy another again
